US Cleveland Class Cruiser Warship 3D print model
1/1800th scale Cleveland Class Cruiser model. Certain elements not to scale.
There were more Cleveland Class cruisers built than any other class of cruisers, a total of 27. Only one survives, though it was converted into a Galveston-class guided missile cruiser, USS Little Rock. The Cleveland class was designed to have improved range, anti aircraft, and torpedo protection from their predecessors. Their six inch guns could fire every six seconds, proving a formidable rain of terror.
This model is designed and tested at 1/1800th scale, but up-scaling and down-scaling are possible. Since the model is optimized for 1/1800th scale, it is not ideal to print larger versions due to a lack of detail. The gun barrels and mast have been enlarged.
This is part of my collection of WWII warships, keep an eye out for more to come. If you have a specific request, message me and I'll bump it up my list.
20 November 18: Fixed thickness of masts. Tweaked angling of the bow. 20 August 19: Added anchor chains. Adjustments for better printability.
Tested with PLA at .08mm layer height with .4mm nozzle.
